Cheap and chirpy at Annan Athletic

ANNAN Athletic FC (AFC) has proven one of the cheapest clubs to follow in nearly all aspects from season passes to the price of a cuppa.

The pound saving revelation comes as part of the BBC’s Price of Football study, the largest study of its type in Europe which has analysed 164 ticket prices.

Season tickets for AFC fans are the cheapest going at £120, that’s as little as £6.66 per game.

With the next cheapest being £140 for a Queen’s Park pass.

The Black and Golds tie with Elgin City to offer the cheapest entry in the top four leagues in England and Scotland, at just £10.

And the Scottish League Two club’s £1 cuppas and £1.50 pies also come in under average, though nothing beats Elgin City’s 60p brew.

Local MSP Joan McAlpine has praised Annan Athletic for ‘putting fans first’ with their affordable prices.

She said: “I strongly support any moves that make the beautiful game more accessible to supporters.

“It is great to see the continued efforts of our local teams to put their fans first and involve more people in sport.

“We are lucky to have such fantastic community-orientated clubs.”

Meanwhile season passes for neighbouring team Queen of the South (QOS), who are in the Scottish Championships, will set you back more than double the cost of a pass to see the Galabank side, they come in at £256.

Single tickets to see QOS play at home and away are also more expensive, costing £16 each.

And a pie will cost you an extra 10p and a cup of tea an extra 20p.
